MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The field of candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court is about to be narrowed from three to just two.
The nonpartisan race for the high court is the only statewide contest on Tuesday's primary ballot. Justice Pat Roggensack is seeking a second 10-year term and is being challenged by Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone and Milwaukee consumer law attorney Vince Megna.
The two highest vote-getters will face each other in the April 2 election.
Turnout for the election was predicted to be less than 10 percent. A wintry blast of weather across the state, with cold temperatures and snow in the forecast, could also keep voter numbers down.
The polls opened at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
